Iowa improved to 15-3 overall, 6-0 in the Big Ten on Thursday with a 90-76 victory at Rutgers. The Hawkeyes have won eight straight games and now have a resume that features six top-50 KenPom wins and zero losses outside of the top 45. That's among the reasons why Fran McCaffery's team is ranked fourth in the CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
Michigan State lost again Wednesday night -- this time to Nebraska. So that's three straight losses for the Spartans heading into Saturday's game with Maryland. And the byproduct is that Tom Izzo's team has gone from No. 1 in the nation to 3-4 in the Big Ten in less than a month. They're now ranked 19th in the updated CBS Sports Top 25 (and one).
